Hi,

 

A while back I collected a lot of data using Accordance. Including things such as the total number of words in each book of the HB and the total number of He-locales in each book. Now, about a year later (and possibly some updated models) I am going back to check my data and I'm finding small differences such as the number of words in Judges has gone down by two and the number of He-locales has gone up in Proverbs from 1 to 2. 

 

So, I'm wondering:

 

What has caused these things to change?

Can I revert back to a previous version to confirm that I collected my data correctly the first time? (I would very much prefer to do this, since updating all of my work based on this new data will take a long time. I would simply like to know if my data is correct based on a specific version of the module I am using and reference that in my work.)

 

 

Thanks!

 

Jarod

Please specify which module you were using then and now. The BHS-W4 has not been updated for 2 years, but we do now update the HMT-W4. The BHS-T has not been updated to my knowledge, but in any text an obvious error could have been corrected.

Hi Helen,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

It is possible I was using an old version of BHS-W4. Is there a way for me to get the previous version so I can compare different search results?

 

Thanks,

 

Jarod

Do you have any idea when you downloaded the original copy you used?

I've been using Accordance since 2006, so I must have downloaded my first copy at that time, but I have no idea how many updates BHS-W4 has gone through since then.

The best I can offer is to try and find the version that was current when you did the research.

Ideally, I think, it would be good for Accordance to provide an archive of all versions of all modules. Since so many scholarly articles are being published based on searches run in Accordance, it is becoming necessary to have access to previous versions. If an article references BHS-W4 version 4.34, but the public no longer has access to that version, then it becomes impossible for others to check the results of scholarly work.

 

However, that is a larger problem. For me personally, I would love to have all versions published between 2006 and now. Do you know how many versions there have been since then?
